The government in Iran has been dominated by extremely conservative Shiite clergy for almost forty years.
The people of Iran have been protesting for three days against their government and its spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The protests arose out of dissatisfaction with prices rising in the country and the foreign policy of President Hassan Rohani but quickly turned into rallies against the regime.
The Ministry in the country has warned that anyone who creates disorder or violates the law will pay a high price.
